Strange Mental games

Mind plays funny games
In the arena of life
Paints the dreams
From the chosen colors of life
Black becomes deep grey and
Pink becomes fiery orange
What games it is playing?
Where fish starts to fly and
Birds start to swim
Voices starts mingling

Sun glows with all its might
Birds sing the same melody
But why mind is playing strange games
Colours fade from the canvas
Music lost its meaning
Words have jumbled
Need to laugh or cry
For no valid reason
People in white shows pity
Few are showing sympathy

This dark blue room
With a bed and a table
Is the whole world
Colours had dissipated
In the fumes of emotion
Locked and chained
Finding answers
Who is sane and
Who is not
Why is it playing these games?

  1. The surreal imagery in the first stanza is such a good setup for the transition into the mental illness. What a strong poem!
